for opportunity might have been disappointed by the action in copenhagen, which seemed to devolve in its final hours into this dispute between us and the chinese. you think it was a success, right? >> i think overall it was -- you know, you've got heads of state to understand this, the chinese and the u.s. ultimately came together, president obama demonstrate the his just remarkable personal commitment to this, the chinese for the first time have made commitments on this front. you've got heads of state all over the world focusing on the great importance of this issue. getting these very large governmental institutions to focus on climate change and come to understand it is extremely important because they're the ones that have to drive the changes of policy that are then going to introduce renewable energy, lots more energy conservation, forest conservation, and most important of all, for your listeners, this whole new area of climate finance, which is going to spread very rapidly. they're going to be hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars invested year after year for a long period of t
the copenhagen climate summit, and one of my big takeaways from talking to the scientists there is there is not a lot of time. we may hit an inflection point where doing anything won't make a difference. so time is of the essence. but it is an issue because the threat is in the distant future or maybe the near future, but not right upon us. that a lot of people out there, a lot of voters who are busy just trying to get by and maybe busy trying to find jobs don't really focus on -- it's a tailor-made issue for strong leadership from the top. and that means not giving it to a hundred other people to sort of work out their deals but trying to come in and corral. and if it involves working with, you know, lindsay graham and joe lieberman, fine, but i think the white house should be driving this. not leaving it to the senate's own devices. >> did you get the memo? did i miss something last week? was there a coalition government formed and they didn't tell us? >> yeah. scott brown became prime minister. i guess you missed that story. >> i did. david corn of "mother jones" magazi
on the heels of what happened, you know, in the lobbying in copenhagen, for chicago to get the olympics bid. we know how that turned out. >> well, look, i think that's a separate matter, but i think politically speaking, it's very important for the president to go up here. this is a democratic candidate in a very important seat for the democrats. so, the president, as the leader of our party, needs to go up there and be seen. i think if you weren't going to go up there, that would really do some damage to the base of the party. but look, it is possible. i think martha's going to pull it out in the end. i think that's what we're all obviously working hard for. it is possible that if she doesn't win, you know, democrats are going to have to go back to the drawing board and take a hard look at how we are effective in the 2010 elections. you know, i think one of the dynamics, though, that we're seeing, alex, if i may, is there's a very strong an anti-incumbency, antiestablishment feeling that i think we're seeing over and over again, and again, that's part of why this idea that the coakley campaign
of that is it could be another copenhagen olympics trip because the blowback on the president would be so bad if he goes back there and coakley still loses. at the same time, his whole agenda, health care and everything else, seems to me, that the message to democrats, if coakley loses, is this is the canary in the coal mine, that health care all these moves the obama administration is making isn't working and that we have to worry about this year's mid terms and not passing the president's agenda. >> what you have going on here is a microcosm of what might be happening throughout the rest of the country. you have a perfect storm of ingredients against incumbents. in this case, incumbent attorney general. there's a river of resentment toward people in public life here. there is also a combination of anxiety and anger overall of the issues that confront families and individuals as well as the nation at large. this huge question here in massachusetts about the costs of the proposed health care plan and it's affecting this election. >> thank you very much, mike barnicle. >>> coming up, the latest on t

, such as the u.n. human rights council, and was recently the copenhagen climate change conference, which demonstrated spectacularly the fatuousness of such international structures, eye of common purpose, a common interest,, and governance. and yet the value of these international institutions and paper agreements seems to leave no lasting impression. did we really learn nothing from the early 20th-century experience, with its repeated and dimmed attempts to regulate the capital ships of the great powers for unable conferences? did we really learn nothing from the kellogg pact, whose signatories incidently included germany and japan? it abolished war forever. and inserted a that the u.s. secretary of state won the nobel peace prize. sound familiar? but at least they ashley sign be useless treaty. obama got it for imagined useless treaty, most notably the one he has been insisting on from prague to new york on universal nuclear disarmament. the night it of obama can be seen in his most recent poll, the dramatic -- the most dramatic of which appeared on september 24, one day after obama sp
on the all-expense paid trip of at least 20 members of congress to the copenhagen climate summit to last month. the bipartisan delegation was so large they needed three military jets, two 737s, and a gulfstream 5. some members of congress brought along their spouses, their kids. there were also senators and staff members who made the trip, most of them flies over commercial. pelosi refused to answer any questions about cost for this or where they all stayed, even though she was the one who decided who went. her office says only that it will, quote, comply with disclosure requirements, unquote. cbs puts the cost of military jet flying time at about $170,000, plus the cost of dozens of commercial flights, hundreds of hotel stays, many at the five-star marriott, and tens of thousands in meals and other entertainment expense. it's a disgrace. the national unemployment rate is 10%, employers cut more jobs than expected just last month. we got the numbers on friday. people are suffering in this country, california, pelosi's home state is faced with a $20 billion budget deficit. governor schwar
